Incredible silk HAND PIECED log cabin LIGHT AND DARK quilt from the 1850s. The size is 72" x 60". There are 2520 HAND PIECED PIECES on the front of the quilt.Each block measures 6" and contains 21 very tiny 1/2" wide pieces. Each piece is hand sewn to the cotton backing material in various lighter shades on the back. The quilt front is all silk with the centers being velvet and is in 95% excellent condition!
A few blocks down the center mostly the orange and gold silk has split perhaps from being folded. A few of the pieces have a little fading. The quilt is basted and has never had a back or binding put on.
It is VERY RARE to find these early silk log cabins in any condition. Would make a DYNAMIC WALL DISPLAY!
This quilt comes from an old collection and was probably never used. We sell only clean American made antique quilts!Anyone can sell quilts, but. Few can professionally hand launder them as we do!
